Hailing from the Disney channel in the ripe year of 2009, the Jonas Brothers quickly rose to stardom as they garnered a large army of screaming teens on the way to chart-topping success. After breaking up in 2013, it was only a short six years before brothers Joe, Nick and Kevin found their way back together, releasing their most recent single, ‘Sucker’.
As expected, the highly anticipated drop lived up to the hype of fans and while the Jonas Brothers’ music is not for everyone, it seems that with their reimagined image has come with fresh new style. To the attraction of its fans, on-stage the three-man cohort remains bold, bright and frivolous while their off-duty street style is kept refined and street cool. As Australia reluctantly moves into the cooler weather, the Jonas Brothers’ recent street style sightings are providing plenty of cold-weather inspiration.
Sweatpants have never looked this good, however it can be argued that there is a fine line between refined athleisure and sloppy loungewear. While the latter will always have its place – namely on a Saturday night-in – wearing sweatpants as a key look can quickly go sour. But like Joe Jonas, if you keep it refined, the style is an easy way to reach level: ultimate comfort. Opt for quality materials and eye-catching designs to elevate the humble lounge pant.

The eldest of the three brothers, Kevin’s mature yet ever-cool style is apparent in this simple look. Providing the basis of a cold-weather uniform – black jeans and black shoes – he effortlessly pulls off a ’70s-inspired bomber with ease. While the eccentric print and metallic sheen is enough to scare anyone away, his laid-back approach makes for a winning street style look. One anyone can experiment with.
Layer, layers and more layers. To survive the bi-polar winter that hits Australia every year, copious amounts of lighter layering is your best bet for ultimate comfort. And while Nick has nailed the brief, its his choice of shoes that freshens up the look. With layering comes the possibility of looking too heavy, particularly with darker colours. To avoid this, add in something fresh to break up the layers. And in this case? Try some white sneakers and investing in a good pair means endless style options.
